Our First Family Vacation

Ok, so really it was just a weekend away in the hopes of seeing some sun. But it did involve some serious car time, and we were worried about how that would go with little Charlie! We headed south to Cedar City and St. George. Cedar City to see great grandma Dodge and my good friends, and then further south to see some sun.

As a testament to our food addiction, most of our big plans before we left centered upon which restaurants we would go to. Taste of Hawaii being our biggest 'must'. Along with good friends it's pretty much the only other thing I miss about Cedar City. :)

Great Grandma

Hanging out at the hotel.

We tried swimming just a tiny bit, because it was actually a little windy, and we got worried he'd get too cold, small as he is.

Getting in a hiking groove with his shades and hat.

Snow Canyon State Park

Nah, nah nah nah nah naaaaa! You're not heeerrrreee.

Overall the trip was a success, and Charlie traveled better than I thought, he even slept through our whole meal out at the hibachi, so we could just enjoy. He liked riding in his baby bjorn for a little while, but he tuckered out after a bit. We went shopping, but I refuse to buy clothes in the size I am now, so I didn't get any, but we got a few cute things for John and Charlie. So good times - we're looking forward to a 'real' vacation this July. Woot.

I can't believe how big he is. I still have your newborn announcement on my fridge! You guys are great. Someday perhaps I'll see you before Charlie graduates from Sky View - We are! S.V.! Wait, that reminds me, I had a dream about SV last night. Weird. K bye.
